What do you think of my Clubhouse profile???
I wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing.
How are things going?
Was your child recently diagnosed with Autism?
Do you need help with anything?
I hope that you and your family are doing well. If you haven't had the chance yet make sure you sign up for our Free parent support group on Facebook - My Child Just Got Diagnosed with Autism
I have been Live Streaming in this Facebook group once per week discussing steps you can take when your child first receives a diagnosis of Autism to provide you with the empowerment and support you need while working on decreasing your feelings of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
I recently was invited to try the new app Clubhouse. I'll be completely honest, I didn't know what to expect going into it. But after spending the past couple of days on it, I have been hooked.
For those who may not be familiar with the app, it is a social media platform that lets you listen in and participate in thousands of real-time conversations happening with people all over the world. Topics range from health, wellness, and spirituality, to real estate investing, entrepreneurship, and business development.
The first thing I did when I was on the app was look up my two favorite topics to discuss - Autism and Pediatric Occupational Therapy.
And would you believe it, I found people who were just as eager to talk about these topics as I was!
As I have spent more time on the app I have been experimenting with "going live" in a similar format as my Free parent support group on Facebook - My Child Just Got Diagnosed with Autism in addition to discussing topics such as:
The response was positive and I quickly realized this is something I need to keep doing so I can continue to support parents and families who have a child that was recently diagnosed with Autism.
If you are on the Clubhouse app, make sure you follow me at "@mikejankowski" and I will be sure to follow back!
Whether I see you on Clubhouse or in the My Child Just Got Diagnosed with Autism - Free parent support group on Facebook
I look forward to seeing you soon!
